" that sprung from the awful doldrums of the u.s. economy under jimmy carter apply stronger, more strongly today. >> house so click >> obama is the same kind of antibusiness president and insight president. same kind of managerial, interfering, strangling, surprising president jimmy carter was. >> you writing here about president obama. i want to get to the right page so i can quote it correctly, sir. you write under the obama administration that the u.s. had a morbid subversion of the infrastructures of its economy. the public sector has become a manipulative forest, aggressively intervening in the venture and financial sectors with guarantees and subventions that attract talent and debunking. >> the worst of this is the korean cast of the obama administration. the epa now has gained control over everything. see so to have been deemed a pollution, dangerous to the environment in co2 is of course that these plans. they attempt to surprise or two epitomize the anti-nature, enterprise spirit of this administration. the reason we need another supply-side revival of the same kind we had under ronald

's the system, stupid. and we live and work in this system of political economy. america's operating system, if you will, that's delivering terrible results. i look at the international comparisons, for example, i've looked at the 20 leading democracies, the old oecd, and i looked at 30 key indicators of national well being and global citizenship, and i was startled, frankly, to find that the united states is at the bottom, the very bottom or next to the bottom on all 30 of these indicators of national performance. so it follows that if we want to change the direction the country's headed and build this attractive future for our children and grandchildren, we were going to have to change the system. we've got to drive this systemic, transformative change until we have, in effect, the new system of political economy, a new operating system for america, one that delivers good results for human and natural communities, but otherwise we've got to embed new and different priorities at the core of our political economy. and to do that, i think we've first got to understand what are the elements o

look at the debt in the u.s. economy by the mid-90s there was more consumer debt and industrial that, so your integrating the working class. and you raise the question of international. a lot of the companies, financial companies that are investing in u.s. mortgages are coming from abroad. so it's international companies looking to u.s. markets because they are deep, safe in terms of protecting property. one thing i want to emphasize about volatility. sometimes when you say there's a chance, well, everything is relative irrational. i'm not talking about speculation and a fraud and the craziness. but of course there is all the craziness. of course there is all the speculation, but the problem is that it's all necessary, it's off and necessary part of global capitalism. having this kind of crazy financial system is actually an essential part of capitalism. >> let me turn that question. want to come back to it even further later on. but where you're going with this notion and the disciplining aspects of it with regard to the working class and also there's a point in the textbook, in you

the power of the central bank to influence the economy so the question facing today as a dead to much to compensate for the political arena where nothing has been done? >> we are in a situation of the thirties and listen driven home to many economists that the great mistake was in the 1930's with the federal reserve thereto late to was there easing and under those particular circumstances, i hope that less than it is not so imbedded but you could argue the traditional powers of the federal reserve would be exhausted. maybe one or two in the toolbox but nothing dramatic. but we have to rely upon others or the low return and animal spirit to keep the economy going. were the great financial expansion with the housing market have been 10 japan still fully with europe and the lesson here is how we let the excess of the housing and member those days you talk about the property around the imperial palace in tokyo? 200 acres was equal to all real-estate of california. that was very old school to talk about it. >> when you talk to fed officials. >> i am off the record.

about it except continually make the economy work while we let the liberals destroyed and then we come in every two years and fix it. but right now -- [applause] common sense is viewed as intolerant. the nicest thing you can say to somebody no matter who it is is to get a job. the nicest thing you can say. when you're walking down the street and there's a guy panhandling and you say get a job, you're complimenting him. you are saying that you have the will and the means to get a job. but now these days if you say that, you are seen as mean and intolerant to assume people have the power to act of their own volition. that is where we are at now, that we can think of ourselves as a person he can take care of themselves. you are a bigot. i never thought i would see compassionate conservative thing. do you remember that? the hat fell off. the compassionate conservative is redundant. being a conservative is being compassionate. it just takes the extra check for people to realize they're in believing something that is better for them. calling somebody a compassionate conservative is like call

scientific things that may or may not be true but a bad idea for the economy. so that sounds a little pessimistic and i'm really not a pessimist at heart but i am -- i consider it unlikely circumstances that exist when rachel carson wrote silent spring and allowed it to have the influence that it did and i don't dig it will occur any time soon. >> one must question. we have some university students in the audience and didn't get much of a chance to talk about what it was like to pursue science in rachel carson? were there some barriers because of her gender? >> there were barriers. a woman who wanted to get a college education in the 1920s was generally thought to these pursuing that for her own personal betterment, and not for the purpose of having a career. it was to become a better wife, better homemaker, a better mother in the future. that was the object of post-secondary education, primarily. women could go into the teaching profession so carson certainly could have been a teacher and she could have taught biology or writing in the future. that would have been a career avenue tha

of mexico. just a fact. and the mexican's economy is highly dependent on remittances from mexican workers in the united states. so, logically speaking, if we want to speak about logic, the obvious solution to the problem of, quote, illegal mexican immigration, the logical solution is rerace the border and create one state. [applause] >> now, there are people in this room who applaud that. and -- and -- and-to be honest, developed a real affinities for burritos, so, i'm not particularly appalled at the idea. and spanish people at least from latin america tend to be very generous with north americans. if you speak a couple words of terrible spanish and english, they're very nice about it. don't ask that the parissans when you try too speak french. so on all those counts only not opposed to the idea of eliminating the border. but if you're a political activist, if you're trying to reach a broad public on the question of mexican immigration, is there even a snowball's chance in hell advocating one state is going reach the public? even though it's completely logical. it is. it's completely sen
